The 2nd Saudi Maritime Congress is strategically important and remains an interactive platform for exchanging information, transferring experiences and exploring investment opportunities available to develop the maritime sector with the participation of experts, pioneers and decision-makers. The Kingdom has provided a pioneering model in the development of the maritime sector, accompanied with unlimited support and unprecedented attention of our wise leadership, which translates to a quality-focused shift in facilities, operational and logistical mechanisms, to position Saudi ports among the ranks of the most important regional ports and an ideal destination for major global navigation lines.
We confidently look forward to the conference, which represents an important step towards keeping pace with developments in the global maritime and logistics sector. We seek to continue fruitful cooperation with the public and private sectors to promote this vital sector, successfully connect bridges with three continents and make the Kingdom a global logistics center.
